in that environment. none of that is done without our dependence and our environmentment in the cyber world. the cyber domain and each and every one of us have become inseparable. tegnonk drives everything we do. -- technology drives everything we do. it resides in private sector. let me repeat that. the vast majority of our infrastructure in the united states resides in the private sector. the national security risks and the economic risks are still with the private sector. remember the government doesn't do it alone. our partners are the private sector. whether you work for the government or you work for private sector you can contribute no matter where you are. in whatever professional desire is. >> it's private sectors, holds as lot of data. and they're protection to the united states priorities is of a national important. the president declared recent lip and i quote. this is in the top five. the cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation and america's economic prosperity in the sunshinery -- century depends on that. we have more informat

the department of the environment. barry, what do you have to add? >> one is the exciting actions the association of realtors has been taking, to be the first and the california to provide space in their database for industry standard, recognized green measures. aside from cork flooring or other surface treatments, which are a consideration, a buyer could have summary information about if the home has been measured for energy performance, and has some independent organization confirmed that you have actually installed -- that there is a reason to call it green. that has only been out there few months. another metric of the fact that could have on the market when that becomes a little more populated in the database would be looking at whether that affects the days on the market, which i would expect to be more likely a factor of change, because if you are filtering your search on that criteria, you have more buyers looking at those particular homes. >> i think it is a very good measure. as the measures become standardized, you are right. it will be something that people will look for. they will sa

municipal bond etfs. my question to you is, in this environment, with the economic environment, with the possibility of a compromise regarding the fiscal cliff, vis-a-vis the increase revenues and cuts in spending, what is your analysis and your opinion on the tax free municipal bonds at this juncture? >> you have to buy them. the individual is going to go right back them and move them up. i think that's a great place to be. don't touch them. i want you to buy them. brilliant idea. now we go to paul in louisiana. paul? >> caller: hey, jim. thanks for taking my call. >> no problem. >> caller: i've been just getting in and sticking with a stock itw. i've been following it for a couple months. they seem to be doing pretty well. there is going to be a change in the leadership. can you comment? >> david spear passed away which is -- he was a terrific guy. this is a very well run company. i suspect that they won't really skip a beat. it's always been a favorite of mine. i would continue to own it. i wouldn't buy it off this. he's a good man. i think it's fine. i think it is fine. is

[applause] it is about time. i want to thank francis and fong. i think this is the very first statewide heritage month held with the mayor of san francisco. let me say something about heritage month in san francisco and your mayor. in the old days, you remember san francisco was known for passing all of these anti- chinese ordinances to limit the movement, the productivity of chinese in the city. we know two things. change happens. maybe the state of california is the state of golden opportunities, where we have a chinese-american mayor of san francisco. 35 years ago, congress members passed similar resolutions in both house and the senate to formally recognize the first 10 days of may as asian-pacific heritage week. one year later, president jimmy carter signed into law a joint resolution to officially designate the
that may be hoarding cash to protect themselves in this uncertain environment but does that mean, likely, they're going to spend that cash or put it to work once we get a resolution of the fiscal cliff? >> it all depends on how it gets resolved. if obama gets his way, and we get big tax increases on small businesses, but also increased double taxation of dividends and capital gains, we'll have a less friendly economic environment for investment to car inside the united states. and that would mean an incentive for companies not to conduct business here. maybe to expand their branchs and their operations overseas. yes, there's the short-term uncertainty in the fiscal cliff that's hurting, but then i actually agree with michael. it's long-term fundamentals that matter. our government is just too much of a burden. >> steve, what's at stake here? >> i want to talk about two scientists from two different fields. one is pav lolov. a dog would salivate when you put food in hem. ed prescott took that idea and said, you know what, when companies spend, they spend after and during recessions when t
department of environment a grant of 400,000 from united states department of environmental protection for preparing cleanup plans for potentially contaminated areas in southeast san francisco in support of the bluegreenway project for period of october 1st, 2012 through october 31, 2015. >> supervisor chu, supervisor avalos, mr. rodriguez, department of environment. we are here seeking your support of the resolution. it is a grant the department received from the epa to continue our brownfield project effort in the bay view and hunter's point community. this will allow us to go out and inventory brownfield sites, do site assessment, preliminary work and identify properties for potentially linking the blue greenway project to it. this is in partnership with port of san francisco, parks alliance in order to open up greater access to the southeastern waterfront . in addition this was announced with the epa as a companion effort. the epa awarded 400,000 in workforce training to hunter's park family and workforce for collaborating with hunter's point family so their folks have an opportuni

damage was being done to the environment that, in fact, was really occurring. acknowledging those lies, b.p. has agreed to plead guilty to felony obstruction of congress. make no mistake, while the company is guilty, individuals committed these crimes. and we have also unsealed today a 23-count indictment charging b.p.'s two highest ranking supervisors aboard the deepwater horizon with manslaughter and violation of the clean water act. the two b.p. well site leaders are charged with negligence and gross negligence on the evening of april 20, 2010. in the face of glaring red flags indicating that the well was not secure, both men allegedly fail told take appropriate action to prevent the blowout. a separate indictment was also unsealed today, charging a former senior b.p. executive, david rainy, with obstructing a congressional investigation and making false statements to law enforcement officials. the indictment alleges that rainy, on behalf of b.p., intentionally underestimated the amount of oil flowing from the well. rainy allegedly cherry picked pages from documents, withheld other doc
where we all count on each other. it's a stimulating environment if you like change and rapid change, amazon is a great place to be. >> rose: beyond what you have said characterize the culture of amazon today. >> well, i would say that the culture of amazon starts with an externally facing culture looking at customers as our touchstone. so companies can be kind of competitor focused. and that approach can be successful. or i think they can start with the customer and that can also be successful. so some companies have kind of a conqueror mentality. if you look at their annual strategic plan it starts with their three top enemies and who they are going to crush this year. and some companies, and certainly amazon is in this group. we have an explorer mentality. so we like to go pioneering. we like to find dark alleyways and wander down them and see if they open up into broad avenues. and sometimes they do. with that pine earring exploring mentality is what drives us. the core of the culture. and over the years it's self-selecting. the people who thrive at amazon and stay at amazon and

to that, as we will negotiate as you know the interest rate environment is pretty low when it is low, and we know when we go to the markets today we will not have any cash flow issues, the interest will range from three to four percent. but because we don't have... we don't intend to issue until 2017, we have used an assume rate of 6 percent. and in doing that, we will realize in circumstances where we will have the deficits where the general fund will have additional dollars. so we are proposing that in the event that occurs, that if we continue to collect the revenue more than we need for that service, we would fund that med assessments will repay the city for those deficits. the next one is the stabilization fund, we know which hotel and revenues that are volatile, so the city negotiater will travel that will fund a stablization fund for future losses in all losses in revenues. and the amounts of $15 million and the goal is that as we move that portion of that $15 million it gets replenished and so it will be maintained through the term of the cod. in addition, as you know, the te
understood the rules better than petraeus and understood exactly the environment in which he was operating and yet he still turned out to be a very different person than who most of us thought he was. >> my friend dan jenkins once wrote a is a tire cal -- satiracal, the 10 stages of drunkenness, skip dinner and number seven, i'm invincible. but particularly men in power, by the way, we rarely if ever hear of any woman involved in this thing that's made public. but anyway, particularly with petraeus, lived in danger for a long time, lived with risk, and risk can be addictive. and the adventure, the risk and then because you're in a position feeling, i'm invincible, i'm invisible. it's a mirage but very easy to believe the higher you go. chris: i think it's called in the old days beer glasses. you can see through those lenses and don't see rationally. >> that raises another point why aren't there women in positions of power you hear this about. i think there's still, women are more attracted to men in positions of power and men aren't exactly attracted to women in positions of power. >> ther
. the public art program continues its 30-year legacy of integrating art into the airport environment with the addition of five new commissions that are as bold and dynamic as the new building. >> this project was completed in record time, and we were able to integrate the artist's early enough in the process that they could work with the architect said that the work that is completed is the work that really helps complement and instill the space as opposed to being tucked away in a corner. >> be experience begins with the glass facades that was designed with over 120 laminated glass panels. it captures the experience of being under or over clouds when flying in a plane. depending on the distance or point of view, it can appear clear for more abstract and atmospheric. the subtle colors change gradually depending on the light and the time of day. >> i wanted to create an art work that looks over time as well as working on in the first glance. the first time you come here, you may not see a. but you may be able to see one side over the other. it features a couple of suspended sculptures
and approval of the transit center which is key to changing the environment surrounding parking by reducing the parking and suggested at the moment we're getting more into a .7 and consider generically as and that we look carefully at holding the developer to parking reduction because of the situation that we really want to commit to further use of transit and fewer cars in the area and i have to say it because i think philosophy how we look at this district has changed so it's kind of a give and takei am -- i am fine with the plan and the increase and correct me if it's the other way and that's within the parameters here and that remains up to the discretion of the developer if things and i don't think there is reason to believe it's the older project but what was pointed out before us is the original project because it has the flexibility to do that and the other thing -- this should have been brought up during the earlier hearing, but one other thing that might be advisable and i don't know if i saw it in the plans but i'm not sure if there are plans for retail in this particular structu
's. the goal of staging is to create a neutral, audience-neutral environment where the buyer can imagine themselves without detracting by having your personal photographs on the walls or your grandmother's throw on the couch. you will notice that it is often neutral tones, nothing too dramatic, not very dramatic art. it is kind of like being in a hotel room. we have actually seen staging in some properties -- in some, it is still prop -- popular. in some markets, it is not even necessary on some properties. >> i think they are getting a little more daring with color. there is some color. because it is expensive -- if you get a stager that can use your furniture in your things, but just at it, as they say, and as james said about the landscaping, that is so important. you cannot leave your kids bikes. it is a whole thing. >> i ride my bike to work. i was riding to work and i saw someone had just repainted their front door. it was a beautiful yellow with a little orange in it. i was thinking, that did not cost very much, and now their house really jumps right out. simple thing. a red door.
of operating environment that we do, mostly in mixed traffic, is going to make that 85% number difficult to achieve, even with all the investment that we have. however, we believe that this level of core funding, this $250 million a year level, will have a significant impact on muni performance and not just the ontime performance, but the spacing of the buses, the reliability of the buses. and i'm going to talk a little more about that. you know, would we like to have twice as much funding, could we do a lot more with more funding, yes. we are trying to be smart and strategic with the resources that we have, recognizing that we're not going to have $500 million a year to build a new subway station for every station under market street at the end of its useful life. we're trying to be strategic and focus on things that will directly impact transit performance. >> supervisor wiener: i understand. i think the question and the point i think we're agreeing on is that the current plan level of investment is not going to sort of complete the task, in terms of getting muni's vehicle fleet into t
were allowed a place at the proverbial table, that the environment was better, that their villages and communities were stronger economically, that their children were healthy, that there was literally no down side. everything changed and made a more stable community. and you realize when women are subjugated and treated as fodder of war, and in this country when they are not allowed to be paid equally, there is a real problem in that. and until we can fight and scream and kick and demand a change. and women not be slaughtered. that there were 100 million women missing off the planet. this is inequality here that must stop. and i became impassioned with it. and i have worked for people like eve -- who still is a hero. i urge people to go on the web site and see what she is doing for women to stand up and scream and be known that this has to change or vital voices, which is another very important group based in washington which helps empower women to go back into the community and spread it our and teach other women and change the world. tavis: you give me another opportunity to cir
because it's bad for the environment. people are so enraptured how cool it is they can order anything and get it brought to their home that they aren't thinking about the carbon footprint of that, the, but that will change. i'm suggesting this could be paving the way for a carbon tax, a global tax on carbon emissions. wait for it? it could be on the way. the middle east remains on the brink. israel has increased targeted attacks in gaza, going after areas where militants are firing rockets into israel, but palestinians say 50 civilians are killed in the last six days of fighting and israelis tanks and ground troops rehe main on the israeli side of the border and this is having some limited impacts on the price of oil this morning, and oil right now is back to $88 a barrel, it's up 1.83, that's a significant rally there. and meanwhile, president obama is in myanmar, formerly known as burma and stated israel's absolute right to defend itself. coming up in the next hour, lt. colonel ralph peters, we'll ask him about the iron dome missile defense and possibly the most important weapon in

population control, the environment and they don't have anything in common with us. they get a peak of did a couple people they have out front to be their conservative individuals but if you really start peeling back the leaders of the onion and will make you cry. it's not conservative at all. they've got us fighting on this issue so much that the national conservative authors are claiming that it's one of the conservative principles. we need to use our conservative principles to address our problem and i think that is what has happened to the recent and it's not just about trying to win the election but grow the party and welcome people and we are wanting you to feel like you are at home. many to learn that in their rhetoric that has been displayed and is doing more damage than it is good. >> i should preface my remarks on this by saying i am in complete agreement that conservatives and republicans need to do a better job or some cases a job for the first time to appeal to hispanic voters and other nonwhite voters but we shouldn't kid ourselves about some of the obstacles we need to start
at this stage. there's a little bit of a risk on type environment at the moment. and the ten year bund yield moving a little higher. the same goes for spain, built oig and yield, as well. we were looking at the euro just bouncing a little bit against the dollar. you're heading into this morning's session, we're holding on to those gains, 127 and a bit. the dollar yen coming off by just a tad. president obama meeting with myanmar's president and opposition leader. obama saying his six hour stopover should be seen as a sign of support for myanmar's attempts at democratic reforms rather than endorsement of the country's government. meanwhile his three day trip is also aimed at reinforcing america's ties with the region. analysts say it's something china is watching very closely. deidre has more. >> the obama's administration to choose southeast asia as the president's first foreign trip since winning re-election was greeted by some with surprise. after all, there are far bigger economies in asia that warrant his attention. the strategic importance of southeast asia in the region is in full focu
. the fiscal cliff is important for a whole range of issues. it adds to the whole environment of intense uncertainty. you are asking people to make investors of their money or shareholders money at a time when nobody knows what the fiscal system will provide. connell: we talk to people on all sides of this debate. the conservative side represented by monica crowley. talking about the conversation changing from all of this from revenue to something about spending. from the business community's point of view, or you concerned? >> both are important. we need to address the fiscal cliff issue now. not december 301 or january 1. you'll get a lot of negative ahead of that. extend the tax treatment. extend the tax revisions. new found out for a period of time that will allow a real discussion about reform. connell: do you have to have a template in place or is it all right to just extend the current environment? >> i think what has been discussed is to come to some very broad agreement with goals for the relevant committees on the hill. that is good. that gives people a sense of where we are go
a group like this. but there is support for it in this environment and so i don't think, the system will dissolve just because there's resistance. >> trevor, i often feel like when you talk to political operatives on both sides and found risers on both sides, and donors, you hear from a strong word but this is kind of self hating core to the people are participating in this system that feel trapped. this thing is just going to go on and, therefore, they'll play and get used to. is that what is sustained this? what is it that keeps it going? >> during the course of the campaign i a chance to talk to a range of major republican donors comment and even victimized even they because i think republicans were interested in the super pacs, the party had embraced of them and citizens united. but i found romney donors saying to me this is terrible. i don't want to be able to write an unlimited check. this is not our president ought to get selected. we need to talk about this after the election. so, you know, now think one of the things that i will be doing is circling back around and saying,
that climate change has little to do with the state of the environment, but much to do with the state of capitalism and transforming the american economic system and you see an opening with sandy, right? >> i do see an opening because, you know, whenever you have this kind of destruction there has to be a reconstruction and what i documented in the shock doctrine is that these right-wing think tanks leak the american enterprise institute and the cato institute and heritage foundation, they historically have gotten very, very good at seizing these moments of opportunity to push through their wish lists of policies and often their wish lists of policies, after hurricane katrina there was a meeting at the heritage foundation just two weeks after the storm hit. parts of the city were still under water and there was a meeting and "the wall street journal" reported from it and the heading was 31 free market solutions for hurricane katrina and you go down the list and it was -- don't re-open the public schools. replace the public schools with vouchers and drill for oil in anwar and the arcti
behind him. you raise taxes in this environment, this is not a growing environment, you're asking for trouble. you're rolling the dice, and i'm telling you, dividend taxes, you know, this is like insane. in any event, it is what it is. we have got to report. you got to do what you got to do. liz: president clinton did it in boom times -- >> no, he didn't. president clip clinton -- clinton did it in 93. we did not have a surplus until we had the internet bubble in 1996. that is the bottom line. i don't care what anybody says. liz: i missed that surplus, i don't care what anybody says. >> look at the gdp growth after he raised taxes. look at our economy right after -- it did not do very well. liz: charlie gasparino, thank you. your tie now is appropriate now that the segment is over. >> okay. liz: closing bell ringing in 27 minutes. confidence among you the u.s. consumer hitting a five year high this month but with the fiscal cliff looming and employment on the rocks, which retailers will come out on top this holiday season, and should you be buying their stocks? joe feldman tells t
for the pbs news hour. lauren sommer, science and environment reporter. and josh richman, bay area news group political reporter. josh, let's start with you. all of a sudden it seems like california, which was in the depths, is now rolling in money. and there's more taxes, we've passed proposition 30. i can't believe there's that much of a turn-around. is there? >> well, there is a turn-around. i wouldn't say we're rolling in money. i've never seen a state so happy to a $1.9 billion deficit over the next year and a half. that's basically where we're at. now, you have to look at that deficit, even though it's the size of wyoming's entire budget, in the context of a $42 billion deficit and $6 billion deficit, we've worn it down over time. with the passage of prop 30 last week, we have money coming in for the next several years to support education, k-12 education, college education and also to help out balancing out some of the mope that's needed by counties for the realignment of the criminal justice system. >> do you think prop 30 was the main reason that the deficit is lower? or is it the fa

of $15 a barrel oil by 2025. in terms of prices, we're talking about in the environment similar to today's, maybe slightly worse, in order to hit those and provide incentive to hit those will targets and also to dampen demand. that is part of the iaea calculus. you have both the production and demand side. an order for us to even in part a modest amount and get to that point requires a major steps forward in fuel efficiency. host: so who is benefiting the most? guest: the middle east continues to benefit tremendously. opec countries share a global connection forecast to go up -- production forecast to go up to nearly half of world oil supplies. the middle east remains a big beneficiary. the u.s. will be better off in those terms than it would be without this increase will bring production. we will be keeping more money at home. oil makes up about two-thirds of our trade deficit now. that number will decline. oil companies that do very well with higher prices will continue to do very well. host: back to the idea of shale gas. you mentioned some parts of the country where this is happening

will make the environment better. we had approximately 1,000 overflows occur in 1999. today, we've reduced overflows by 45% to 50%. and it's going to continue to improve as we go forward with the rehabilitation program that's required under the consent decree. narrator: an important piece of the program is the construction of an 8-mile-long storage tank that will significantly decrease combined sewer overflows. man: right now, we're at the bottom of the rockdale construction shaft. we're 310 feet below grade, deep under atlanta in hard rock. in the downtown area of atlanta, the sewer system and the stormwater system are combined and there are overflows during storm events, and so the purpose of this system is to relieve that flow, take it into the tunnel, transport it to a brand-new treatment plant, clean up the chattahoochee river. narrator: instead of the combined sewage overflowing into the river, it will flow into this tunnel that acts as a storage tank. the water will then slowly empty into the new plant for treatment before it's released back into the river. man: the system in total
to stormwater infrastructure to transport water away from the urban environment. one approach was to carry waste and stormwater through the same pipe. this combined system was less expensive than building two individual pipe networks. and stormwater was seen as a way to flush out the sewers. through the 19th century, the combined system was considered state-of-the-art throughout the world, and is still in use in many cities today. but cities constructed these systems before treatment was the standard. and even today's largest treatment plant doesn't have the capacity to treat the sudden volumes of water rushing through a combined system during rain. the plant is overloaded, and the excess rainwater, mixed with untreated raw sewage, is diverted straight into local waterways, creating a combined sewer overflow, or cso. there are over 700 communities in the united states with combined sewer systems. the other approach was to separate wastewater from stormwater, using two pipe networks. this separate system simply carries the stormwater away from the city. but even separate systems pollute the water
to reduce the infrastructure's impact upon the environment. on the front lines of protecting the beaches, are the crews that clean out the stormwater system. man: this big vactor truck works on the same principle as your vacuum cleaner in your house, only this thing sucks up the whole house. some of the storm drains collect a lot of trash. i started cleaning drains in '93. they were horrible because they hadn't been maintained so much. now this is a priority. you have trash, animal waste, and it ends up on our beaches. that is a health risk. that is one of the main reasons why we have to close the beaches after heavy rain. narrator: but even when it's not raining, water still enters the stormwater system, carrying pollutants. here on the west coast, a lot of our storm drain systems are separate from the sanitary sewer system, so if you dump something in the storm drain, it goes right to the ocean untreated. alamillo: we haven't had a major rainstorm in the last year or so yet there's a lot of water in this creek here. i would say 20% of it is natural and the other 80% is runoff. shapiro:
there for the long-distance carriers. so, that is a change to the environment in that area. and you do need to go out to the locals. the other thing is because of the... there are two properties that we were not even going to touch now we have to work either to preserve one of them is got a historical significance, and we will work underneath it to protect it. but again, this has not... the owners of these properties need to have a chance for a say. the vent structures we want to make sha clear and because they are above ground structure and they vent smoke. they may never vent smoke. we may never have a train fire. i prefer that to be the case. but certainly a lot of transit projects and other cities have had problems with vent structures and people, and we have done our best to provide some preliminary designs which we think will get rid of those concerns. >> those are good examples. i was just curious, thank you. >> director metcalf? >> i am really glad that we are talking about the extension of the cal train i am hope thating we spend more time as a board on this. i have no concerns whatsoever ab

environment is much more difficult. see what's happening in europe and middle east and china. second, you just had an election, and the message, one of the messages of the election was, one of shared responsibility and fair burden sharing and a period in which the rich have bun extremely well. not just on the inside but in terms of being protected on the down side. finally and importantly, the economic arguments against this while they are valid at higher tax rates are not valid here. if you look at the hand that president has, it is stronger than the republican and i think both of them will want it see some sort of compromise.
